I have to say, I am a big fan of the mod look from the 60s! I think A-lines are just so cute on little girls and those vintage-y floral prints?? Swoon-inducing. I was given a big stack of old patterns and there were some seriously adorable little girl dress patterns that I just had to try! Another favorite of mine is sewing with vintage sheets! First off, you get a ton of "yardage," sometimes for just a couple bucks! Secondly, the patterns cannot be beat. The big, bright florals, funky patterns...it's so fun to hit the thrift store and see what you can find!

Ah, the awkward first post. What to say? Hi! Nice to meet you, thousands of people who are jumping to read this blog! Or not..
A little about me should work for starters, I suppose! My name is Amanda. I have been married for nearly 10 years to my awesome husband, who I love more every day. I am a stay at home mom to the most gorgeous, fun, sweet, smart and hilarious identical twin daughters. It is so much fun to be their mom! They just turned 18 months old, so things are getting wilder by the minute around here! I love God, my family, creating things, reading, music and being with friends. I graduated from a Christian college with a degree in music, but I've never really used it. I'm quite content doing what I do!
